Saga Pagan Rus against Teutonic Knights
I took on Reg's Teutonic Knights with my Pagan Rus. I got toe be the invader and filled up the middle of the table with a rocky hill. There is a frozen marsh on my left and a forest on the right. I chose diagonal deployment.
Here are my Russ wandering forwards, I marched up to just out of long range and saved my dice for battle board abilities.
My Levy move onto the hill and throw some javelins at their opponents. I killed 1.
I really didn't want to be shot by crossbows all game so my Warriors dashed forwards to explain why they should be using a manly weapon and not a crossbow.
My warriors killed 7 crossbowmen and took 3 casualties in return.
The knights move forwards to smash some pagans. I get wiped out and do no damage.
The foot warriors attack my levy and drive them back of the hill.
My Levy are now back where they started and the Warriors are on the hill. Knights are closing on all sides.
The knights and warriors creep forwards
I lose 2 levy and do nothing in return.
My Levy now don't generate a saga dice.
My Hearthguard assault the Teutonic levy, they try and fall back but I cancel their withdrawal action by using 2 of their fatigue. My Hearthguard reduce the levy to below the minimum to generate a saga dice for the loss of one of their number.
My last unit of hearthguard rest and march over to attack the warlord. Fortunately I roll enough 6s that the warlord fails one and dies. I lose another 2 hearthguard so I am down to 1 out of 16.
I think I fancy building a unit of mercenary scouts to go with this army.
